[gdal-dev] Anyone compile the ruby bindings for Ruby 1.9.x?

It seems in Ruby 1.9.x the way of determining where the ruby.h file has


I ran into an identical problem trying to build Geos yesterday and now
I've hit it in GDAL.


In swig/ruby/RubyMakefile.mk


There's the following line;


RubyMakefile.mk:RUBY_INCLUDE_DIR := $(shell ruby -rrbconfig -e "puts



The ruby config now uses the class RbConfig and the attribute rubyhdrdir
is now used in stead of archdir.


I changed the line to the following


RUBY_INCLUDE_DIR := $(shell ruby -rrbconfig -e "puts


But it appears that more has changed with the include file structure in
Ruby 1.9.x


Has anyone successfully build the ruby bindings?
